Headies

December 26th 2013 is the date and it’s going down at the Oriental Hotel 2013! The Headies which is in its 7th edition has become undoubtedly the Nigerian Grammy awards.This year, leading the nomination lists are: Phyno and Olamide with Iyanya and Davido closely following behind. Now, the most famous and rewarding category at The headies is the Next Rated Category (which is believed to be for the shining stars within the past year who do not have an album yet). Not only does the winner of the category get the award, he/she goes home with a brand new car (uh-hun, a brand new car). Previous winners of this category include Omawumi, and Davido who won last year. This year sees nominees like
  • Seyi Shay
  • Phyno
  • Sean Tizle
  • Dammy Krane
  • Burna Boy
Seyi Shay Being the only female artiste on this list is a good reason for Seyi to be excited PLUS she has done a good job this year. Seyi was also nominated for the Next Rated award at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards. Seyi performed to the whole of Africa at one of the Big Brother Africa eviction shows and she also gave us her new video to 'Irawo'. Right now, Seyi is signed as brand ambassador to a telecommunications company and we hope to see an album in 2014!   Phyno Phyno has been able to convince everyone in this past year that Igbo is that language to rap in. The indigenous rapper has been remarkably awesome this year with a few singles, and some collaborations to his credit. With hit songs like 'Ghost Mode', 'Man of the Year', 'Kush Music' and others, we're hoping to get a full album by 2014. The funky rapper with his signature hair also has the highest number of nominations this year alongside his Yoruba counterpart, Olamide.   Sean Tizzle

Sean Tizzle has really tizzled the whole of Nigeria with his 'Sho Lee' banger. He was also nominated in the Next Rated category for the Nigerian Entertainment Awards. Sean Tizzle, who is a brand ambassador for a couple of brands,  has his new video to 'Mama Eh' getting masssive attention. According to him, there's an album coming out in 2014.   Dammy Krane 'Dammy Krane for the gyals dem' is also up in this category. He was also nominated in the 'Next Rated category' at the NEAs. Dammy too has done a great job this year, signed to Hypertek, released a lot of hit tracks of which 'Lobatan' (which has a viral video) is currently everywhere. Dammy mixes the new school with the old school so well and this is one of the reasons he's loved.   Burna Boy

 Burna won the 'Next Rated Category' at the NEAs (as I rightfully predicted duh) but you think he can pull this? Burna has had an awesome year with an album to his credit and collaborations from the big boys in the industry. On a scale of 1-5 (with 1 being the highest) most likely to win this award are:
  • Burna Boy
  • Phyno
  • Dammy Krane
  • Seyi Shay
  • Sean Tizzle
